This Labor Day, Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Victoria’s Secret set a trend that other retailers need to follow — and it isn’t crop tops or bright floral prints. Gap recently became one of the latest retailers to promise that it will stop using on-call scheduling, a commitment that both Abercrombie & Fitch and Victoria’s Secret made earlier this summer. On-call scheduling is a practice that wreaks havoc on employees’ lives by requiring them to be available for shifts that can be canceled, often hours before start time, with no pay. On-call means waiting at home and calling in to see if work is going to materialize or not.
